Fa78 Uptown Finale- Last K & D Chicago Show
Fair-to-solid Uptown finale- also Keith's last show in Chicago. First set Jerry tunes are great: 8 minute Candyman, 15 minute Sugaree, and a 6 minute Stagger Lee. Bobby's slide in the mix leaves me scratching my head. I think his tunes sound better since he lays off on those, allowing Keith room for filling the holes. KG sounds really good on Sugaree. I think he typically sounded better during this late '78 period with JGB, anyhow, and of course this is a fairly standard JGB number.
Set two is good, not great. The Scarlet->Fire opener is a treat- Scarlet better and longer than the Fire. Some headyversion attention (5): "Scarlet is the star here very long and jammy the Fire is actually rather short but the scarlet really soars. nice transition jam." "Single digit sleeper." The 13-minute Other One is the show highlight, coming out of I Need a Miracle->He's Gone, and seguing into seven minutes of drums->Ollin Arageed->Wharf Rat. Sixth Ollin Arageed of '78. Always good. (Would play one more time in '78 on 12/30, then just 8/5/79 and 3/13/85.
This SBD is really excellent, as opposed to the two previous nights- where the streams suffer. Mainly on this audio basis and the o1 show highlight, I'm going with four stars (contrasted with the previous two nights of threes). In short, this was a good -- not great -- Uptown run. If the archive recordings here looked and sounded different, it might be different. At any rate, no question the winter and spring '78 runs were better. Keith would close out this tour, play a final couple tours in '79 -- actually really well-played final tours -- and then we're into the Brent era. (Last K & D show, 2/17/79; first BM show, 4/22/79).
Couple other notes: This is the 5th From the Heart of Me. Really sweet song and version. Donna sounds great. Some playful banter post-song, too: Something from Jerry about Dickless Kreutzmann...and his new nickname, Cum-Gums?!

It sounds more like Mickey than Billy playing the dozens before TMNS, does he say, "there are chiquatas on the river"?

The Other One
Nice recording of this concert, you can turn it all the way up.
Around 4:10, it slows a bit, and seems they are looking to go elsewhere.
But no! Garcia whirls into some speedball Egyptian madness around 4:30, and by 5 they are back to it. He lets out an astonishing squeal around 5:57, a note you've likely never heard before.
It ends around 6:27, and heads into space, with Garcia probably using the volume knob to make cello sounds around 8:20.

Agree with Lazy below
Again, KUDOS to Charlie Miller. Another spectacular re-mix.
I LOVE the stage banter between Jerry and Billy! "Dick-Lips" LOL! A lot of F-Bombs, but you can see how they still enjoyed doing what they do...because they were the only ones who cuold do what they do.

Great show and 2nd set, but this mindbending version of TOO deserves special mention.

From the Heart of Me
At the end of From the Heart of Me, there is about 45 seconds of dead air. You hear Jerry ask the boys if the next song being played was supposed to be Playin', but I one of the boys, I think its Billy starts trading off lines with Jerry. It is hilarious. They start cussing each other out and you can obviously hear it clearly because its a Charlie "the man" Miller transfer. I am forever grateful Charlie. Your work with these remasters blows my head into the next dimension. Keep up the good work with Kimock and these remasters. Forever Grateful,
